Rohit Sharma, who is La Liga's brand ambassador in India, had said in the past that he is an ardent Real Madrid supporter.

Rohit Sharma on Friday congratulated Real Madrid after they secured their 34th La Liga title.

Real Madrid secured the 2019-2020 La Liga trophy after a 2-1 win at home to Villarreal on Thursday night. Karim Benzema scored twice in a game they needed to win to assure the title with a game still to play this season.

"Another title in the bag. Real Madrid truly came together as a team during these tough times. Congratulations!" Rohit, who is the La Liga ambassador in India, said in a tweet.

"Finally some good news in a year that is severely lacking any," he added.

The Indian cricketers are currently enjoying a forced break at their homes amid the global COVID-19 pandemic which has so far claimed more than 5 lakh lives across the world.
